  1. CUSTOM ETCHED ROCKS GLASS

 

These personalized rocks glasses are the perfect gift for a whiskey-loving dad!

 

You get to customize the etching on the glass to a map of dad’s hometown. For our last anniversary, I got the champagne glasses with a map of the place where my hubby and I met. When my husband saw them, he discreetly mentioned that whiskey glasses would’ve been cool too.

 

Take my word for it: go with the etched rocks glass or beer pint glass for dad this year!

  1. A CHEF’S KNIFE

 

If your husband is into the culinary arts at all, you can’t go wrong with a chef’s knife.

 

This Thai Chef’s Moon Knife is absolutely guaranteed to impress.

 


 

  1. KACHULA ADVENTURE BLANKET

 

If dad likes the outdoors, this versatile outdoor adventure blanket is THE. BOMB. DOT. COM. But quite honestly? It’s a great gift idea no matter what.

 

You can use it for backyard barbecues, camping trips, beach days, etc. The blanket actually stuffs into itself to make a pillow (super convenient). And it has a snap-attached hood to convert into an emergency poncho.

 


 

  1. A NEW SPICE COLLECTION

 

My husband is obsessed with cooking and he’s very adventurous in the kitchen. When I think of unique gifts for dad, I think of giving him something that he loves and has fun with.

 

If the dad/baby daddy in your life loves to cook, then hook him up with some fun new cooking spices.

 

You can also throw in a simple little lazy susan or a spice rack to complete the gift look.

 


 

  1. WRISTBAND WITH MAGNET

 

If your dad or hubby is a tradesman, this is the gift to go for. These magnetic wrist bands have magnets inside to catch and hold loose screws and drill bits.

 

Super convenient for that hard-working dad.

 


 

  1. GRILL SET

 

You seriously cannot go wrong with a grill set for dad. While it’s not the most unique gift in the world, if dad likes to grill, get him a new grill set.

 

My mother-in-law got a grill set and these heat-resistant grill gloves for my husband and he LOVES them!


 

  1. BEARD KIT

 

This one is for the dad with the beard.

 

A beard kit is such a great gift for dad, and it’s super affordable if you’re on a budget.

 

You could also aim for a simple beard oil like this one.

 


 

  1. SHOULDER MASSAGER WITH HEAT

 

This baby is a best seller, and for good reason.

 

Give dad the gift of a kick-booty massage with this back and shoulder massager.

 

He just has to rest the pack over his shoulders and let the machine do all the work.

 


 

  1. AIRPODS

 

I was an AirPods hater at first. Like, seriously, is this even a necessary thing to invent?

 

But then, one day when I was chatting on the phone with my headphones in, I turned to grab something off the floor and my phone went flying off the counter.

 

Time to get some AirPods.

 

These are an absolute essential if dad spends a lot of time talking on the phone or listening to music!

 

Does he already have AirPods?

 

Then get him this nice leather case for them instead! They have a keychain so he can keep his AirPods safe on his keyring.


 

  1. PERSONALIZED CHILDREN’S STORY BOOK

 

These books from Hooray Heroes are among my favorite gifts in the world.

 

I got the sibling adventure book for my kiddos last year and they absolutely love it.

 

They now have a special personalized book dedicated to dads. You get to design the main character to look like dad and incorporate stories about him and his kids.

 

Super special.

 

  1. HYDROFLASK

 

These things are alllll the rage right now, and for good reason.

 

Hydro flasks are amazing, they keep your drinks ice cold all day long, they are sturdy, and will pretty much last forever.

 

We’re a HydroFlask family for life. Buy dad a HydroFlask right here!


 

  1. ESPRESSO MAKER

 

For all those espresso-loving daddies and baby daddies out there, an espresso maker makes a great gift.

 

Of course, you can always throw in a “World’s Greatest Dad’ mug, ya know, because that’s original!

 


 

  1. PERSONALIZED HAMMER

 

Need we say more?

 

Get dad a personalized hammer that makes him feel loved.

 


 

  1. PORTABLE PROPANE GRILL

 

These propane grills are super convenient for beach parties or even small backyard barbecues.

 

They are a little on the heavy side when it comes to lugging them around, not gonna lie (we have one and take it to the beach all summer). Thankfully the guys and the dads do most of the heavy lifting!

 

But it’s worth it once that crispy carne asada is grilled up and ready to eat!

 


 

  1. A BURRITO BLANKET

 

My husband and I have a slightly inappropriate inside joke that makes this gift extra special.

 

A burrito blanket is a fun novelty gift that dads love. I got this one for my hubby as a gift from the kids!

 


 

Which one are you buying for dad this year?
